Ocular Disease Diagnosis and Treatment
Our Eye Care Clinics make it a policy to ensure that all staff members are up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to make your visit as comfortable and effective as possible. As optometric technology changes, it is even more important to select an eye doctor who has all the right optometry qualifications and follows the latest developments in eye care.
Utilizing cutting edge technology, we are diagnosing and managing, with greater precision, diseases like Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration Cataracts, and Diabetic Retinopathy. Earlier and more precise diagnosis means earlier treatment and better outcomes. We are taking an aggressive approach to diseases that previously had few treatment options. Great advances have been made in the treatment of these diseases.
Over 50% of people aged 65 and older have a cataract in one or both eyes. As the cataract progresses, vision deteriorates, leading to a decreased quality of life. Cataract surgery can safely and effectively restore vision, enabling patients to see clearly once again.
Diabetes and vision go hand in hand. If you have diabetes, you need to know that having this systemic disease puts you at greater risk for developing vision problems.
The goal of glaucoma treatment is to lower intraocular pressure by causing fluid to drain. If other forms of glaucoma treatment are deemed ineffective, glaucoma surgery offers an excellent alternative, as it can stall vision loss by preventing further damage to your optic nerve.
Macular degeneration, also known as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of vision loss. While there is no cure, it can be managed. Read on to learn more about AMD.
